Eight people dead, 15 injured in terror attack in Manhattan
Eight people are dead and 15 have been injured after a truck mounted a bicycle path in lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon, mowing down cyclists and runners while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.
ABC News and other media outlets named the suspect as Sayfullo Saipov of Tampa, Florida. According to CBS News, the terror suspect is “Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, apparently from Uzbekistan.”
Saipov, mounted the bicycle path at Houston Street at 3.05pm and drove 17 blocks downtown, knocking down victims before coming to a stop at Chambers Street where he eventually crashed in to a school bus.
There were two children and two adults inside the bus at the time. They are among the 11 injured people now in hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
After coming to a stop in his rented Home Depot truck, the terrorist then emerged from waving a paintball gun in one hand and a pellet gun in the other.
He was shot in the stomach by an on-duty NYPD officer who was at the scene and is now in hospital under police supervision.
At a press conference at Police Plaza later, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio condemned the attack as a ‘cowardly act of terror’.
‘Based on the information we have, this was an act of terror and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians, people going about their lives,’ he said.
NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill confirmed the driver’s movements. He would not release his identity or nationality, saying it was too early in the investigation to share such details.
President Trump acknowledged the attack on Twitter, describing the perpetrator as a ‘sick’ individual.
‘In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!’ he said.

And the left doesn’t want to ban Muslim immigration. Bloody fools.
Trump instead of stopping terrorism is turning America into London
Yes for sure…its exactly your kind of mentality that is propelling the problem – not Trump. You are so deranged in your on way not have noticed that EVERYTHING Trump has done to STOP these filth coming into the country has been BLOCKED by your dopey leftist ‘friends’ – simply beggars belief.
The ideologically blinded leftist fools who put obstacles in the way of every sensible action that can slow down if not completely block the influx of muslims into the country, are content to sacrifice american lives in the name of diversity – as long as it is not their own family who die.
Here in the US, anything that is “white” is evil, as if every white male in the US had a slave, slaughtered Native American tribes, and beat women…therefore, the less white male something is, the better. Hence, Islamic people from Uzbekistan are great! What could go wrong, since they are all good people who share common values, bringing down the oppressive white male?
What do you do when a Religion allows, fosters and does not bother to Rein in the Extreme teaching of their own religion and then it gets unleashed on the world. Pakistan is where this started. And Continues Mosques gather up orphans and take them in and Brainwash them with Extremism and sexually abuse them at well. You do not see the other religions of the world fomenting the Twisted Extreme Idea’s in the name of their Religion killing innocent people.
All the Religious Leaders in this Faith knew it was going on and did nothing, they are still doing nothing. As long as they were killing people of other Religions it was OK. Killing someone because they hold dear the faith or teaching they were taught is the cruelest form of being inhuman on this planet. Ignorance breeds contempt, it is easy to manipulate a weak mind and it is weak minded fools that are perpetrating this terrorism on the rest of the world. Killing and Raping Aid workers that are trying to help the poorest people in the Regions. One time someone asked a Russian General what they were doing in Afghanistan, his reply was, trying to drag these people in the 20 Century.
They can’t rein in their extremist teachings, because it wouldn’t be Islam then.
“In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.”
“Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men. The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God, that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus.”
“The precept of the koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force.”
– John Quincy Adams
Thank you for the quote. May the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ open their eyes.
Poor NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill … have to report to a lefti anarchists de-blassio… the liberals and democrats asked for it…. let them imports more of this filth… let’s turn the USA into what Europe is already – Eurobud !
De blasio is just as terrorist as the filthy comonist Obama !
They belong to the ‘Fifth Column’.
He is not “a sick individual,” Mr. Trump, he is following Islam to the letter. If you let more into sanctuary cities and the country as a whole, you risk much more terror in the name of Islam and people who worship a G-d that they think demands of them to kill infidels and kafirs and non-believers and believers who are not extreme enough for their beliefs and their G-d.
Mr. Trump, with his politically correct utterances, now sounds nearly indistinguishable from his foolish predecessors.
sorry Americans live in a fantasy world of their own making. they think they know everything so freedom of speech is only for them, being hateful and violent is ok as long its done by them. they are greedy and selfish and care not for their country God or truth, but only their hubris.
As are all such incidents, this is a call not only to vigilance, but also repentance, return to our maker Yahweh, restoration of the faith of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets, including especially Yahshua.
As i understand it the DNC says muslim terrorists don’t exist so they never use the term.
if they don’t exist ask obama and hIlliary say who did this? must be that darn christian video again!
